高齡樂園與非核家園
A Senior Citizen Paradise and Non-Nuclear Homeland

我是一位老年精神科醫師,診療失智症十五年,在行醫過程裡,目睹許多家屬為了照顧老人家,犧牲自己的青春與未來,令人不忍。台灣即將邁入高齡社會,需照顧老人家多達四十萬人,希望馬總統在剩餘兩年任期,加快長期照顧體系相關立法,補強長期照顧服務網路,務必讓長照保險於預定的2017年前實施,以幫助人民照顧他們的摯愛。

I am a psychiatrist for the elderly and I have been treating dementia for 15 years. In the process of practicing medicine, I have seen many families sacrifice their youth and future to care for the elderly and it is hard to bear. Taiwan is about to become an aged society and as many as 400,000 elderly require care. I hope that President Ma will accelerate legislation related to the long-term care system in the two years remaining in his term, reinforce the long-term care service network, and ensure the implementation of long-term care insurance scheduled for 2017 to assist the public in caring for their loved ones. 

我也長期關注社會議題,經常投書媒體。1986年爆發車諾比核災,兩年後台灣舉辦首次反核大遊行,就讀大學的我參與其中;2011年,在核能業者與官員的安全保證中,又爆發了福島核災,兩年後,我必須與就讀大學的孩子,再度走上街頭。台灣地狹人稠,地震又多,真的不適合發展核電,馬總統若能在卸任前宣布停建核四,台灣人將記得你是促成非核家園實現的領導者。

I have long been concerned about social issues and often submit articles to the media. The Chernobyl nuclear disaster occurred in 1986 and two years later the first anti-nuclear power rally was held in Taiwan. I participated in this rally as a college student. In 2011, with safety ensured by the nuclear industry and government officials, the Fukushima nuclear disaster occurred. Two years later, I must take to the streets again with my college age children.Taiwan is small, densely populated, and prone to earthquakes. It is really unsuitable for the development of nuclear power. If President Ma can announce a halt to Longmen nuclear plant four construction before he leaves office, the Taiwanese people will remember him as the leader who facilitated the realization of a non-nuclear homeland.
